Ronnie Matthews & Throwdown

When: 17-Feb-2019 - 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Where: Performance Center

Ronnie Matthews & Throwdown have been described as ‘peppy, poppin!’

Their recipe for music is tried and true, especially when Richard Comeaux kicks in with a heavy steel ride and Jason Bergeron strikes on fiddle. Matthews' sonic individuality gives life to the zoomin’ ZydeCajun juxtaposed with sweeping Acadiana dance hall waltzes (i.e.“Convict Waltz,” and “Just Me & The Bottle”).

Throwdown throws down renditions of the often covered “Shaky Ground,” Waylon Thibodeaux’s Bourbon Street rave-up “No Draws.” In addition, the band pushes into a romantic dreamland with the western swing classic “Sleep Walk” with more steel magic conjured by Comeaux.

Then it’s back to a stirring waltz, Belton Richard’s “Waltz of No Return,” a rousing two-step (i.e. Dewey Balfa’s “When I Was Poor”) and flows into a ZydeCajun ride.

There last album was described by Offbeat Magazine as ‘one of the best records to fly out of Acadiana Records in some time.’
